Great RockGreat Rock Co-op Christmas Markets

Friday, 1 December 2017

This December, Great Rock Co-op's Christmas Markets will showcase local artists and artisans every Saturday (10am – 2pm) at Staups Lea Farm, Staups Lane, Blackshaw Head, OL14 8RR. This year the Co-op will be packed with superb food and crafts, a café, kids activities and everything you need for a sustainable Christmas!

The shop, owned and run by its suppliers and customers, is dedicated to providing great locally produced food and craft to the community around Blackshaw Head and the Upper Calder Valley. The Co-op is located just round the corner from the famous landmark of its namesake – The Great Rock – where Eastwood Road meets Staups Lane. It's a beautifully scenic spot locally known for epic landscape views of Calderdale.
